SimCloth test animations

Time to share some tests I made with SimCloth. I invite you to do the same. Posting the setup window makes a quick reference for further use. Thanks.

I tested the tablecloth effect trying to come as close as possible to the real effect after my wife told me my test cloth was moving excessively. She showed me the real thing on a small table... Of course, as usual, she was right... I'm comming closer, some more tests to do.

Here I tested a sphere with different stiffness values.

The same sphere with a stiffness of 100 in a staircase

To be continued...

Thanks again, Rick :-)

A question - in the table project, was there a reason why you parented the centre post to the Simcloth plug-in? There doesn't seem to be any interaction between the tablecloth and centre post.

I get "file not found" when I try to load the movies :(

I'm sure they're great though

In early tests the tablecloth was hitting the centerpost and went right through it...
So, I added it as a deflector. It is not necessary with the new settings.

Ian: I'm having intermitent problems with my Server. Seems to be fix now...
Should be permanentely corrected today. (permanently..??? LOL!)

A great help

Rick (or should I say Mr Joly as we've never 'messaged' before)

Not posted here before but I wanted to say thanks for posting your settings on the tablecloth project. SimCloth is very cool but I don't get the chance to muck about with stuff like this as most of my work is architectural. To be able to jump in and get such an effect is very cool - cheers!

On and of course a big thanks to the Igors for such an amazing plug-in. EI rocks.....or softs if you like.

More useless tests...

A tablecloth controlled with strenght map. I let the plugin drop the cloth on the cylinder and checked the time when it hits it. I then used a strenght map and manually moved the cloth to the desired positions:

This one is a test where I wanted to fold the tablecloth cleanly using poles... Well, forget the "cleanly"...

Hey Richard,
I really like your "folding machine", very clever.
Great tests.
